Fresh off her tipsy jaunt to Australia and a swing through Cambodia, Thailand and “Myanmar” with President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is taking the sisterhood of the traveling pantsuit to the Middle East today “to consult on the situation in Gaza.” Let’s hope she left her bottle down under.

An Israeli official said a possible ground invasion has been put “on hold” as Clinton prepares to join ceasefire talks with leaders in Israel, the West Bank and Egypt.

Unsurprisingly, Obama will not be joining Clinton at her meetings with Netanyahu and Abbas.

But hey, maybe the White House will grace us with another Historic™ photo of the president phoning it in. More on Clinton’s trip to the region:

No worries, guys. Hillary’s got this covered!

Will Clinton continue to remain silent on Turkey’s claim that Israel is engaged in acts of “terrorism”?

Also headed to the region is U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who is expected to arrive ahead of Clinton.

    Mrs. Clinton was shocked to discover that her husband was a philanderer.

    Oh she’s a smart one. You can’t pull the burka over her eyes!

    Oh wait, actually you can.

    The scary part of this is that the administration in term 2 will probably be worse than term 1. One wouldn’t think that’s even possible.

    Phew! I bet the whole Middle East sighs relief since it’s Pantsuit Hillary to the rescue. Or they might just wonder who the ugly dude is.

    But she won’t be talking to Hamas. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Hamas the ones that started the whole thing? Seems kind of important that they be included in cease fire talks.

    Maybe she can come back and regale the American people with stories on how she ran for cover under a hail of enemy sniper fire from the chopper like in her Bosnia trip of 97… Oh yeah that was a bullshit story she told…

    She’s on it!

      @digitalPimple:disqus ~ that story she told in ’97 had me rolling on the floor. She wasn’t even smart enough to find out if choppers even try to land during enemy fire.

    Great…now I am worried if anything I have tweeted will get blamed for provoking the spontaneous protest Hamas has been engaging in.

    I apologize if this comment appears sexist….

    I also apologize if this offends the illiterate….

    …or the blind….

    Careful HilRod, they aren’t too fond of women in those parts.

    *Disclaimer – this comment was not intended to offend white people, women, white women, Hamas, Palestinians or any other group in the middle east. If a spontaneous protest erupts in response to my comment, I apologize, it was not my intent. :)

    Loved this, thanks for making me laugh!!

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      yes me too. Going to have to use this. Hope Malkin doesn’t mind.

      I loved it too! Almost spit my coffee everywhere. Hopefully this traveling pantsuit isn’t bright orange…

    Let Hillary go to the Gaza Strip and have a chat with Hamas leaders about the rockets flying into Israel. Except that would mean facing the fact that the problem in the Middle East is not Israel but in fact is Arab intransigence on the state of Israel’s existence itself.

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to Israel:

    Wipe out as much of Gaza as possible before Hillary arrives. Then ignore her and the child molesting/enslaving UN and Charley Mike (Continue Mission)!!!

    It’s not like Hillary actually wants to talk to Israel. She wants to talk to Hamas with an open checkbook for more tax payer funded missiles.

  • T-Bird

    Think there will be bullets whizzing by her head like before? Oh….wait a minute….

  • Mijo

    I wonder what color scrunchie will Hillary wear with her pant suit? Cuz nothing conveys diplomatic competence like Hillary walking in with her hair in a pony tail.

    The Men, Women’s and Children’s Ghosts of #Waco will never quit haunting Hilary’s evil soul and one day soon they will have their cold dish of justice as nobody can escape life alive.
